Brain-friendly food No 1 is BERRIES
Berries aren’t just delicious, they also work wonders for cognitive function thanks to the high levels of powerful antioxidants they contain, specifically anthocyanidin. Anthocyanidin has been shown to boost memory, neural function and coordination by improving communication between brain cells, increasing plasticity – the creation and strengthening of neural pathways - which helps with memory and learning, and reducing cognitive decline. As a rule of thumb, the darker the berry, the higher its antioxidant content, with blueberries and blackberries being the winners.
